Federal employees were given the day of Christmas Eve off this year—and they absolutely deserve it.
After decades covering the federal beat some patterns become evident, like the question of a Christmas Eve day off.
With the Christmas holiday falling on a Wednesday, President Trump decided to close the government and give employees an extra day off.
For the past few months many federal workers hoped against hope that they would get a bonus holiday today from the White House. And they got it, sort of.
This time last week many long-suffering civil servants were searching for their starving-college-days ramen noodle cookbooks to survive paydays delayed.
Be honest, how many of you bet a colleague, or yourself, that the president wasn’t going to give feds a bonus holiday Christmas Eve?
In today’s Federal Newscast, the Postal Service’s inspector general said USPS has more than a million square feet in excess real estate.
Congress is considering whether to give feds a 1.9 percent pay raise in January. And the president has yet to decide or at least announce his decision whether to give nonemergency federal workers a bonus holiday on Christmas Eve.
